"We have ample evidence from Mueller's indictment [and] from a number of confidential sources to paint a pretty clear picture of exactly what the Podesta Group was doing for years here in Washington".

Now Tony Podesta has chose to leave his lobbying company the Podesta Group after Special Counsel Robert Mueller included the group in his investigation.

It's Tony Podesta who President Donald Trump is referring to as "the biggest story" one day after it was announced that former Trump campaign officials Paul Manafort, Rick Gates and George Papadopoulos face criminal charges as a result of the FBI investigation into possible Russian interference in the 2016 election.

After being introduced to the lobbying firms, the European nonprofit paid the Podesta Group $1.13 million between June 2012 and April 2014 to lobby Congress, the White House National Security Council, the State Department and other federal agencies, according to USA lobbying records.

In April, the Podesta Group filed paperwork with the Justice Department stating it had done work for the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine, which also benefited the same political party in Ukraine that Manafort had at one point advised.

Tony Podesta, the brother of Hillary Clinton's former campaign chairman John Podesta, has stepped down from his namesake lobbying group citing the current news environment, according to a source familiar with the situation.

Molly Levinson, a spokeswoman for the Podesta Group, said the firm's work was "in support of Ukraine's admission into the [European Union]", and the Brussels nonprofit had certified that "it was neither funded by nor directed by a government or political party".

Podesta announced his decision to leave The Podesta Group during a firm-wide meeting Monday morning and is alerting clients of his impending departure, Politico reported. It subsequently amended its required filings.

Mercury said in a statement that it "takes its obligations to follow all laws, rules and regulations very seriously" and "has and will continue to fully cooperate with the Office of the Special Counsel in its investigation". The firm said at the time that it believed its client was a European think tank with no connections to a political party.
